    • Kansai Area Tour (7 nights)

      Japan Nov 6, 2016 at 7:07 PM

      I am traveling for the first time with my family and friends (15 persons in total).

      For 7 nights, we will sleep at Kashihara, Nara.

      We are planning to have a two-day tour in Kyoto, one day tour in Kobe and Himeji, one day tour in Nara, and the rest in Osaka. Is Kansai Area Pass and Osaka Amazing Pass a good idea?

      Any suggestions for the best PASS (or passes) to avail (or cheapest travel expense plan) for this itinerary?

      Hello,

      Can anyone recommend any activities/shopping mall/arcades/book stores that operate 24/7?
      My partner and I are unable to find any accommodation in Sapporo center or Shin Sapporo on Christmas Eve (24th of Dec 2016) at this point, and it appears that we will be accommodation-less for the night.

      I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can suggest anything we can do to kill the overnight hours.

      cheapest way to travel and visit Tokyo and Kyoto from Los Angeles

      Kyoto Nov 12, 2016 at 1:35 PM

      I am thinking of flying into Kyoto from Los Angeles and then departing from Tokyo. Originally, I was going to fly into Tokyo, visit a few days (I have 10 visiting vacation days) and then go to Kyoto and then return to Tokyo for my flight home. I have since found out how expensive it is to travel by train. I am looking into the JR pass which is $269 for 7 days. That is a good deal I believe. So, If fly into Osaka, take the train for $30 to Kyoto, then stay a few days there, then start the 7 day pass while there and use it to go to Tokyo and use it there for five days and then use it to go to the airport too to leave, is that a good economical idea? I have checked plane prices and there is about $100 increase in the flight to Osaka vs. Tokyo.

      Japan/Misawa residents, I have some Questions?

      Misawa Apr 5, 2012 at 3:12 PM

      Hey guys! Please forgive my ignorance about this- but I was considering living in Japan for a couple of years, and I understand that it is very difficult. I am a dietitian, and I was born in Japan, IN Misawa- and I want to work inside the hospital on base. I just think it'd be neat to work where I was born, and get to know Japan a little bit.

      For residents, what do I need to know about trying to attain residency? For military if there are any, are there any requirements to work on base? Thank you! Any input is valued, even if it destroys my dream haha best to be informed.

    • No-visa stay limit/renewal

      Misawa Oct 4, 2011 at 2:01 AM

      Hi! I'm in the US Navy, stationed up here in Misawa, and my wife's paperwork for command sponsorship (indefinite stay permission) has been lost and resubmitting it will take longer than she has left on her 90-day stay limit, because she doesn't have a working/student visa. We're probably going to have to fly her to Korea and back to restart her stay-clock, which we are both a little terrified of, so we were wondering how long she needs to stay in Korea for it to reset her time in Japan.

      To sum up: How long does someone need to leave Japan for, in order to reset their no-visa stay-time?

      Any assistant will be greatly appreciated!!!

      Planning A Trip

      Hello

      I am very interested in going to Japan, Aomori to experience Nebuta festival, can someone advise me when is the time to go and the exact date of Nebuta festival. Besides that what other places that I should go if I am there? I heard that the hotel booking must be made early as during this festival almost all hotels will be fully booked. Which airline is the cheapest carrier to travel as I am from Malaysia. I need more advise before I could start plan the trip and map the route.

      Thanking in advance for your help.

      need to park

      Hirosaki Jul 22, 2007 at 6:10 AM

      This might seem like a strange question, but I am traveling to Hirosaki by car to see the Neputa festival. I don’t have a hotel that night, but I figured I would just sleep at an internet café. What I was wondering was, what is the parking situation like in the city itself? I want to ditch the car and see the festival but my map of the city doesn’t show me where there are places to park. Any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks.

      I'm living in Florida, currently, but will be flying out of ATL to travel to Misawa in October/November.
